Bridge:An Impossible Performance
Pilot worked with Imagineer Productions in Coventry in September 2019 on an ambitious large-scale outdoor performance of Bridge: An Impossible Performance, which was the result of a large community project about building bridges and created by artistic director Orit Azaz.
Over a number of months, the wider community came together to create their own real or imagined bridges, celebrating stories of bridge-building, bridge-burning and making a difference.
All gathered in the City Centre for the final spectacular show which included gravity-defying circus acrobatics, dance, comedy, theatre and live music which was inspired by local people’s stories, which created a thrilling and moving montage of the courage, compassion and humour needed to bridge a divide.
Due to unsettled weather, the Pilot team recorded one of the earlier performances and this was shown in a local venue and simultaneously streamed to an on-line audience.
